Who loves going to the park? I do! And I bet you do too! We are very lucky to have an abundance of wonderful parks, gardens, walkways, tracks, reserves and sports fields to enjoy in Wellington. There are parks for every occasion you can think of. Where is your favourite park, and what do you enjoy doing there?
Wellington City Council’s Parks Week 10 – 18 March is an annual celebration of our parks and there’s lots going for the whole family to enjoy including Bike Krew Rodeo and the great annual Mt Victoria Treasure Hunt! These events are both free and family-friendly so make sure to bring mum and dad, and your friends along too!
Parks are so important for our communities, they provide us with lovely green outdoor areas to play in, and they help keep us and our environment healthy. Show your appreciation for our cities’ great parks by heading along to a Parks Week event or by simply enjoying your favourite local park.
2016’s Parks Week video is a cool clip worth a look too! And here are some outdoor activity books:
